Asbestos Mineral Fibers Can Cause Harm To Miners. Free Case Review if You Were Harmed by Asbestos
The term asbestos refers to the following mineral fibers: chrysotile, amosite, crocidolite, anthophyllite asbestos, tremolite asbestos, and actinolite asbestos.
When this fibrous mineral is mined, manipulated, disturbed or deteriorating, its fibers are released into the air, where they can float for hours or days; the fibers are invisible to the naked eye, and may only noticed only when there is a significant cloud of asbestos dust.
The mining of asbestos itself was especially dangerous, but miners in other kinds of mines have also been at risk of asbestos exposure because of the widespread use of asbestos in mining machinery.
Sadly, as the lawyers in the Weitz & Luxenberg Asbestos Litigation unit have seen through their work, many people were exposed to the asbestos carcinogen at their job simply because the powers that be failed to have in place routine safety measures.
Weitz & Luxenberg is a leading plaintiffs' law firm that has represented people affected by mesothelioma for over 20 years. Men and women diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure may be entitled to compensation from the companies responsible for their disease.
